Controlled Burning Continues on Wednesday March 10th for Winburn Ridge in the Ashland Watershed
On Wednesday (3/10/21), the Ashland Forest Resiliency will continue a controlled burn of debris piles to lessen fire danger in the Ashland Watershed along USFS 2060-500 spur and Winburn Ridge. No trails or roads will be closed however the 2060-500 road will have areas with heavy smoke impacts during the pile ignition. This area is remote from popular trails so we donít expect any recreation impacts.Thank you for the continued patience as we continue to do the important work of removing these excess fuels from the Ashland watershed. Learn more about the work of AFR partners and controlled burning on our website.
